Serve this dip with baguette slices, Toasted Cayenne French Bread Slices , and/or raw vegetables. The dip may be served hot, warm, or at room temperature.
Kitchen Tool Tip: The bean dip may be pureed in a food processor, blender, or with an immersion blender.
An immersion blender is a relatively inexpensive and wonderful kitchen appliance. It allows the cook to simply place the immersion blender into a pot of soup, a bowl of dip, or any food that needs to be pureed--either slightly or to a smooth texture--and do the job without transferring the food to a blender or food processor.
A real time saver!
